Malay proverb 101 pt.1

Ladies and gentlemen,
children of all ages..

Lesson for today:

Sudah terhantuk baru tengadah.

Means: when damage's done, only then preventive measures are taken.

Example: Gomen announce that they will do 'Mapping of more than 100 islands around our country'. Like, finally?

Case on point: Pedra Bianca and (God forbid) Pulau Pisang.

Kalau puntung masih berapi, janganlah dihembus-hembus juga

Means: don't relight the fire

Example: Promises made by the KERAjaan.

Case on point: They will decide if Petrol price needs to be reviewed MONTHLY.

udah-udah lah tu.

Seorang gabenor telah mengatakan bahawa dengan kenaikan harga minayk setiap USD1, pengeluar minyak mendapat untung dan sepatutnya la ni around 72 million la untung. Awat nya naik.

And we will end today' lesson with a poem

Petrol hike
Food hike
Utility bills hike
Immorals hedonists hike
Desperados hike
Depression hike
Crime rates hike
Entrechment hike
someone need to take a hike!

Err. Bad Bad poem but at least it rhymes (rhyme mendenya kalau hike hike ayat sama ma)
Okay kids, thats all for today.
Rrrrrrrrriiiing. (For whom the (school) bell tolls)

Time kaseh che-gu!
